During FY24/FY25, Vedanta will continue to deleverage from net debt of $7.7 Bn and plans to cover 50% of FY24 liquidity requirements internally and the balance through re-financing. Over the past 20 years, Vedanta has raised more than $35 billion through debt and equity and yielded highly attractive returns to shareholders, while maintaining an excellent track record of debt servicing.

Vedanta, a former FTSE 100 company, has an unparalleled portfolio encompassing: Zinc (world’s largest integrated producer), Aluminium (India’s largest producer of primary aluminium), Oil & Gas (India’s largest private producer of crude), Silver (6th largest producer globally), battery metals: Nickel (India’s sole nickel producer) & Cobalt, Copper, Iron Ore & Steel and Commercial Energy.

Vedanta’s next phase of growth will be fueled by its associated companies’ investments into Semiconductors (India’s first Semiconductor producer in collaboration with Foxconn), display glass (Avanstrate), renewables (through joint venture with KKR), optical fibre (fibre to home) and transmissions. Vedanta’s portfolio uniquely covers traditional and cutting-edge businesses.

Vedanta, a global organisation, is set to capitalize on India’s growth, stable governance, and the strength of 1.4 billion Indians increasing their reliance on domestic production.
